The Mammoth Road: NH Folk Tales as an Avenue to Local History and Culture
Wednesday, January 3 @6:30pm (at Trumbull Hall)
The Etna Library presents this NH Humanities-funded event with author and historian Erin E. Moulton.
Folk tales are passed from one generation to another, embellished by time and teller: Ethan Crawford was as tall as Mount Washington. He could carry at least 7 men on his back!
Yet, when we look at folk tales, the people who compiled them, and the location from which they spring, we can access history in a new and entertaining way. Join us to hear and explore folk tales collected by the New Hampshire Women’s Federation (1932) and dig into local resources in search of truths. Was it tall tale or town history? Let's find out.
Erin E. Moulton writes books and tracks dead people. As a researcher, slipping into old records and exploring past lives is something she has done for herself and for others for over 14 years. Erin is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, The New Hampshire Historical Society, The New Hampshire Society of Genealogists and she serves on the landmark committee for the Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire. She has written several books, mostly for children.
This Etna Library event is supported by NH Humanities and The Etna Ladies Aid Society.
